  • We read about the Tropical Fruit Garden. We must. Was open only on Tuesdays and Fridays. The owner has given us clear everything explained what all present and what is grown. And everything tasting. Fantastic.

  • Here to get an insight into a project for the cultivation of tropical fruit and vegetables and learn something at the same time. Eloquently and with nice anecdotes background knowledge is imparted to the plants and application forms. Varied and something different. For people, the sense for the small beauties and wonders of life have necessarily recommended.

  • From the harbour of Vueltas, views in the wall upwards if not a stone comes along, we were on the way to the Barranca Alex. Hard to believe it's anything back there. Matter a while rough rocky but beautiful beach is the Playa de Argaga, a country house with large garden for facilities - Finca Argayal and further back that where once lived the hippies Bay of pigs. The Barranca book follow the trail left up to the apartment of the Finca approximately 300 metres away. In the 1980s, the fruit garden was built terraced by a German family. Supposedly thrive here more than 160 varieties of tropical fruit. The mounting is done of course purely biological. You will be greeted in German and soon also the lead in the German language begins which is of course much easier. The gentleman from Saxony starts with the leadership and knows all sorts of interesting to report what you never heard. And of course there are the occasional tasting of the fruit - there are at least 10-12 of such samples. The statements are factual and funny. It is pointed out again and again to touch anything or to throw a nucleus on the ground. In the first part of the conduct I've seen yet, not all too many fruits on the trees and shrubs, well maybe come Yes above. What bothered me was that sometimes explains getting a fruit and tasted, but does not actually grows on which tree. Here, I have repeatedly asked and get response - he comes back only there. The second part of the Guide started so that it is pointed out man politely that the entrance fee is now due. €10 are to fork out. Probably was a price increase to 2015 to € 1. The owner himself is on the series with the second part of the Guide. Little low voice, the old lady explained the in the district seated 12 people the difference between k and Sharon fruit, tasting of course and also shows how to injury-free picks a prickly pears and consumed. Then it goes to the upper terraces. Again you will be pointed out to touch anything or to drop seeds on the ground. I didn't get to even here too many fruits look, sometimes hung just more one or two on the tree, eg. at the mulberry. I wonder where the whole samples come from when almost no fruit there is. 160 different should be Yes. Well maybe caught the wrong time of year. Of course not all there can be late October this is surely clear. All in all I can say we got fruits explained and the costs presented, I not have - seen on the plantation as the Sharon fruit. The Orchard is open always Tuesday and Friday. Tours are from 10 am-4 pm in winter, in summer also until 18: 00 and you can join at any time. The group sizes from 10 - 12 persons are optimal. During our visit, a lot was going on and the visitors came and went. There, a nice Körberlgeld per week comes together with an entrance fee of €10 per person. My question whether you can purchase also fruits what Yes thought I got a no, because you may have a sales license and sell therefore nothing. What do you with all of the fruits when 160 varieties are ripe. We didn't have the problem to our time, because anyways, little was available. Conclusion: The guide was competent, businesslike and funny. The price of €10 is covered for the services. Once seen I won't need to go on the next visit to La Gomera, if perhaps more fruits.
